"No real opportunity for extended improvistaion."

Couldnt agree more. It's really an aweful song. And a perfect example of what was wrong with the Grateful Dead during the 80's and 90's...

Starting in 1990, many versions of Terrapin were 15+ minutes with fully extended jamming. Have you not ever heard any of those?

I have heard them, and frankly I find them rather difficult to listen to.

It's not jamming by my definition of the term, and certainly not nearly as cohesive or compelling as what was transpiring on an almost nightly basis during the 60's and 70's!

I know you attended many shows during the 90's, but your being there doesn't make the music any better today...

I made no judgments about how compelling it was or whether it stacked up favorably next to the 60's and 70's. I love the 60's and 70's. I was simply pointing out that you were wrong. But it's amazing how you can be right anyway, simply by narrowing the definition of what a "jam" is. You must have helped Clinton prep for Ken Starr's interrogation.

Like Cliff, I have heard many, both on tape and in person. Just didn't do it for me. Sorry. But just because I don't care for the tune doesn't make it a tune no one should like. To each his own. If you like it, more power to you and please continue to enjoy the tune.

Word to that. I will certainly do so.

Those post terrapin jams that you speak of are the most interesting part of the Terrapin, for me personally. I wished they would do it more with UJB as well.
